    Rated walls using filters, .pat and VG

    I cant get the rated wall to work using the filters, .pat files and visibility graphics routine. Tried differed scales in the pattern, different orientations, course display but it comes out solid or fine. I need the dashed wall type. What am I doing wrong?

    You need all materials of the wall to also have a cut Pattern Defined, even if you don't want to see one.

    For instance: my stud layers have a cut pattern that is a single line that repeats every 10,000 feet.

    Once that's there, the filters work correctly.

    And they need to be Aligned with Element if I remember correctly.

    THats not it. All my materials have a cut pattern. I have see insulation (x hatch) and gypsum. The course is set. Now I tried the "graphics) in the wall type, changes the color and pattern, still nothing. Its strange.

    And you made sure allllllll three patterns (the two originals and the one in the Filter) are set to Align with Element, as Greg said?

    I've noticed I often have to REMOVE the fill pattern and put it back in, if not. Simply turning it on doesn't always work.

    What do the existing wall patterns ( like gypsum and insulation) have to do with the new fill pattern being applied?

    That depends: Do you want to see the Filter work correctly, or not?

    alignment

    Is it going to effect the look of the other wall hatches? I would like to keep the wall insulation ,just add a wall rating line over that.

    Depends on what your hatch patterns are. But it doesnt matter. If your plan is to use Filters to put Fire Tapes on top of the walls, you have to set all of your wall layers materials to have a cut pattern, and that that cut pattern has to be set to Align with Element. That makes the Filters work.

    OR you can only show the filters in views set to Coarse LOD, which will work regardless.

    Thats the deal.
